Atlas® Roofing Corporation is proud to announce that four of its asphalt shingle manufacturing plants received multiple recognitions for safety in the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association’s (ARMA) 2021 Accident Prevention Contest. The annual contest honors asphalt roofing manufacturing facilities for workplace safety, specifically low-incident rates among workers.
According to ARMA, facilities that entered the 2021 Accident Prevention Contest were judged based on ARMA criteria derived from the standards set by the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This information is gathered through quarterly safety data reports from the past calendar year.
For their continued and improved safety records last year, four Atlas Roofing plants won six awards in two categories. For the Perfect Employee Safety Certificate, the winners were: Atlas Roofing Corporation, Ardmore, Oklahoma; Atlas Roofing Corporation, Daingerfield, Texas; and Atlas Roofing Corporation, Meridian, Mississippi. For the Certificate of Safety Improvement, the winners were: Atlas Roofing Corporation, Daingerfield, Texas; Atlas Roofing Corporation, Hampton, Georgia; and Atlas Roofing Corporation, Meridian, Mississippi.
The Perfect Employee Safety Certificate recognizes plants with a perfect score for the reporting year, while the Certificate of Safety Improvement recognizes plants that demonstrated an improvement of at least 25% over their previous year’s performance.
